Backsberg Chardonnay 2011

Backsberg Chardonnay 2011

Apricots, almonds and cream combine in a fusion of intense aromas – hallmarks of a Backsberg Chardonnay. These characters, balanced by fresh acidity, complete the palate that is long and powerful.

Although perfect as an aperitif, this flavour-filled wine ideally matches seafood and cream based pasta dishes.
